The church is a nightclub, the choir loft is the upstairs bar, and the wine is replaced by mimosas (though, if you ask nicely, the bartender will probably serve you a wine). Sunday Funday takes a spiritual twist this week in Wilton Manors.
Hunters Nightclub, which is usually less church robes and more hot bartenders in tight shirts, is hosting an over the top Gospel Brunch Oct. 15 at 1:30 p.m. While it will have a revival vibe, its main goal is bringing money and awareness to CAN Health.
“The gospel brunch is raising funds for our patient assistance program,” Terry Dyer, CAN’s Director of Donor Development, said. “It’s so incredibly crucial to the work that we do. It’s a program that helps people with their mortgage, rent, utilities, food, and transportation. It really gives them an opportunity to live everyday lives.”
The afternoon will be more than a free flowing gospel karaoke session. Gospel Brunch is a full show created by D-Rock Productions.
CAN is also debuting its new exhibition, Welcome To Our Neighborhood, which profiles unsung heroes in South Florida.
“They’re our community members that we see every day but don’t think about how to celebrate the work that they’re doing and giving back and contributing to our community,” Dyer said.
Community is a core value CAN celebrates daily, and the event is meant to be a community celebration.
“It’s uplifting. It’s a moment to celebrate us. There’s so much happening in our society right now, sometimes it’s okay to take a breather and celebrate each other. And that’s what this event is about.”
